harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Best by: 22APR12 Pours a nice copper ale with a sheet of white foam and excellent clarity leaving some decent lace. A somewhat spicy smell with an unusually english malt profile from this brewery. There some aromas of prune and citrus. Flavor is malty with again spicy hops and a good english (almost high end ESB) malt character. Really nice flavor, just not what I expected from this brewery. Medium bodied with moderate carb and an off-dry finish. Nice pale ale, really dig the take. Not all flashy like some of todays offerings. Serving type: bottle 03-21-2012

ciaranc (896) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 10, 2013
355ml bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin. Deep clear copper, frothy, decent sized off white head, lasting. Malty nose, a little toast. hints of molasses and honey, a little spruce hop note, not much. Huge malt flavour, sweet up front, settling to a biscuity, almost nutty note toward the finish. Big body. fairly forward carbonation. Finish is sweet biscuit malt with a nuance of herby hops. Nice.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a red tinged amber with a small off white head. Aroma of pale malt, biscuit, caramel, citrus fruits. Flavour is refreshingly hoppy, citrus zestiness, sweet malt and caramel. Biscuit and peaches on the finish. Super drinkable.

Emeister84 (994) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Aromas of piney, sharp citrusy hops, with mild caramel and bready malts. Clear amber with gold highlights and a lasting small off-white head. Dry, light vanilla, lightly bitter, well balanced. Light bodied, smooth, and clean.

GIJOE (635) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Deep reddish amber pour with a foamy, white top that lingers long. Nose is malty and sweet, but the taste is surprisingly and pleasantly bitter. Good body and lively carbonation. Stone delivers. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - NOV 20, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. A: Pale biscuity malts, floral hops, and citrus notes. A: Pours an orangish-brown with a nice, frothy, three-finger, white head that slowly dissipates ending in a solid lace. T: Hop forward with nice citrus notes, and a very strong malt backbone. Very well balanced. Smooth, and crisp. P: Medium body and mild carbonation. Not the smoothest finish but still very good. O: Another solid beer from Stone Brewing. Definitely worth buying again.

Light pine and malt aroma. Amber color with thin off white head. Sweet malty start with a grassy twang finish. Awesome.
